2.0 out of 5 stars Errors in text, 17 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Don't buy this book for children unless you already know some German. There are errors in the text that are inexcusable and could have been corrected by proper editing by an English speaker with knowledge of German. I intended to give this to a 10-year old grandchild just starting German, but she won't get it until I have been through the whole book scribbling out the errors and putting in corrections.

3.0 out of 5 stars Kindle version - revert to print!, 15 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought the Kindle version but was intensely irritated by the typos (there are even question marks after some of the words in the text that don't make any sense in their context), by the uncorrected lay-out,and by the lack of illustrations, so have ordered the paperback version, which does have maps. Non-fiction mostly requires pictures, maps etc, even if it is a digital version, so I'll stick to non-fiction in print in future.

4.0 out of 5 stars Where are illustrations?, 5 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this on Kindle where it cost nothing, and in the reprint version for £10. In neither edition are any of the 60-odd illustrations (listed in the printed version) to be found. While I don't need to see a picture of an augur or a tile-making machine, the diagrams would have been of help in understanding some of the drainage systems described. The text itself is extremely interesting and lucidly written (in 1859) which makes the absence of some of the diagrams referred to even more irritating. There seems little point in reprinting 260 pages of text and not putting in 60 pages of useful illustration. It would have had five stars from me if illustrations had been included.

1.0 out of 5 stars Unreadable layout, 7 Jan 2012
This review is from: GREENMANTLE (Kindle Edition)
The vertical layout of the text is unbelievably awful. Rotating it horizontally improved it but meant that holding and operating the Kindle was awkward. The book itself is what one would expect of John Buchan (and is of interest since I had just been reading Peter Hopkirk). But I shall get myself a paperback version and delete this one. The one star relates to the Kindle layout, not to John Buchan.

4.0 out of 5 stars one for short hair please, 28 Aug 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I like this product pretty much, but it would be nice to have one more suitable for short hair. There is a Vidal Sassoon one with a rotating brush, VS433C, but it is not available for us in the UK - not even via Amazon, unless you can supply a US or Canadian address for delivery. Possible, but a hassle.

1.0 out of 5 stars smelly pack, 18 Jun 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My two young cats love this Felix product when bought from the supermarket. The 48 pack bought through Amazon stank dreadfully when unpacked. I tipped out all the sachets from the separate packs and dicovered the cause, but couldn't precisely identify the substance that was stuck to the bottom of one of the 12-packs, though it smelt like a particularly pungent glue. The smell clung to all the sachets, even after I had washed them all with washing-up detergent, so I couldn't bring them into the house for storage. One of my cats refused to eat the contents of any of the sachets. Eventually I gave the lot away to a friend with more cats than I have that didn't seem to mind what they were eating. I've gone back to buying from the supermarket.
